Kitchen Queen Contest Entry #3 - Huggy Jon's "You Name It" Dessert

Kitchen Queen Contest Entry #3 - Huggy Jon's "You Name It" Dessert

I'm proposing a very tasty little dessert that I've already posted on my old blog last year. It's very easy to make. All you need are three ingredients you can find at any grocery store near you.

First this:



Doesn't have to be this brand of course! Can be homemade if you already have some. I personally prefer the little-berry jam (raspberry-blackberry-blueberry).

Second, you'll need this:


(vol-au-vent)

and third, this:


(ice cream)

Vanilla works best for this recipe although I wouldn't know since I've never tried with another flavor!!!

Put one scoop of ice cream in heated pastry we call here "vol-au-vent" (fly in the wind) and then pour some lightly heated jam on top of it and you should get something that looks like this:



The flower is optional.

I don't have a name for the dish but I hope some of you will come up with something well-fitting.

Bon Appétit!

xoxo
Huggy Jon

UPDATE:
Oh and don't forget to heat up the vol au vent in the oven for about 10 minutes to bring it's fluffy-ness back (should I add BEFORE you put the ice cream?). You can warm up the jam in the microwave.

Contrast is the key here:
-the hot jam vs the cold ice cream
-the flaky-ness of the pastry vs the silky softness of said ice cream.

And I use a fork AND a knife to eat it: you cannot cut this thing with just a fork as easily as a pie or a ca....

Ooops! I almost said the Word

    2. Thanks for the tips DeepBlue.

      I was hoping for "à l’ancienne" MJ to pick up on the Anon, but she's too busy translating French like Julia Child.

  6. Ancienne is ice cream? Seriously? WELL WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY SO DAMMIT! *dives facefirst into fridge*

    1. "Crème glacée" is French for "ice cream" and "à l’ancienne" is French for "old-fashioned."

      So Huggy Jon's photo depicts a tub of "old-fashioned ice cream."

      Now close the door of The Smeg (more about Miss Scarlet's Smeg in a later post.)

      Delete
    2. One more thing...

      You can use any type of ice cream in Jon's recipe. It doesn't have to be the brand pictured in the photo.

      And it doesn't have to be "old fashioned" either.

      Delete
    3. The Coaticook Crème glacée à l'ancienne is made with REAL cream from REAL milk, comming out of REAL cows. Nothing to do with those disgusting products they sell us in supermarkets in which you'll find everything except CREAM!!!

      Did you know they put fish blood in those "fake" ice cream? Read it for yourself Bitches!

      Delete
    4. Yikes! Using the “blood of an ocean pout, an eel-like creature that lives in the North Atlantic.”

      I’ve never heard of an “ocean pout” so I Googled it and found that “the fish has antifreeze proteins in its blood, giving it the ability to survive in near-freezing waters.”

      THAT explains why they plan to use its blood in frozen fruit ices!

    2. I’m sure that ‘s not the ONLY thing Ms. Nations would pick up.

  13. I recently thought about naming this recipe "Fantasy on Ice". The problem is that every time I say it, my mind keeps playing a video of the two Brians (Orser and Boitano) involved in a very explicit pas de deux on the skating rink, wearing nothing else but their skates...

    ...maybe this is not a problem after all!

    Of course, we could use the French translation: "Fantaisie sur Glace", cause we all know how sophisticated it sounds to call a recipe in French!

    1. “Fantaisie sur glace” sounds like the perfect name for this dessert!

      Did you know that Brian Boitano has a COOKING SHOW on The Food Network?

      It’s called What Would Brian Boitano Make?

  14. Merci à vous toutes, ma gang de salopes. Vous êtes sansass, as usual! I've been greatly entertained with your comments.

    Gosh! I don't know how MJ does it every day, on almost every posts, finding the appropriate reply to all of our comments. I admit my brain cells are overheating right now from the experience. I'm totally pooped!

    Now I know from reliable sources that MJ will be home late tonight so I want all of you bitches to be at your best behavior when she walks in.

    And no panic attacks from any of you until then or you'll get thrown in the gincuzzi... with your clothes on!

    Haben Sie angehört, Herr von Lax?

    HAIL MJ, TO OUR OWN AND ONLY QUEEN!

    Hugs to all of you.
